Redskins Roster Cuts Including LB Perry Riley & DT Stephen Paea


The Washington Redskins have begun the process of trimming their roster down to 75 players. Here’s the full list of roster cuts up to this point:

Other roster moves include:

  • TE Derek Carrier (PUP)
  • RB Keith Marshall (Injured Reserve)
  • WR Reggie Diggs (Waived/Injured)

Paea, 28, is a former second-round pick of the Bears back in 2011. He was in the second year of his  four-year, $21 million contract that included $15 million guaranteed and set to make a bases salary of $3.3 million for the 2016 season.

In 2015, Paea appeared in 11 games for the Redskins and recorded 19 tackles, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble.


Riley, 28, is a former fourth-round pick of the Redskins back in 2010. He was in the final year of his three-year, $13 million contract and was set to make a $4 million base salary this season.

In 2015, Riley appeared in nine games and recorded 44 tackles, two interceptions and three pass defenses.


Jefferson, 24, originally signed on with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of Stephen F. Austin back in 2013. He managed to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but was waived a few months into his rookie season.

The Bills later signed him to a future/reserve contract in January of last year, but he lasted just a few months in Buffalo before he was cut a week or so before the start of free agency.

Jefferson signed a future/reserve contract with the Redskins this past January.

In two seasons with the Eskimos of the CFL, Jefferson recorded 43 tackles, 10 sacks, and a fumble recovery.


Stewart wound up going undrafted out of Ohio Dominican over a month ago, but signed on with the Buccaneers before he was waived with the injury designation a few weeks later.

After clearing waivers, he reverted to the Buccaneers’ injured reserve before he was cut loose in June. The Redskins signed him to a contract a month later.

During his four-year college career, Stewart totaled 196 receptions for 3,197 yards receiving (16.3 YPR) and 25 touchdowns. He also contributed 416 kick return yards and 171 punt return yards to go along with one return touchdown.
